As layered, collective works that bring together multiple kinds of intellectual property, films present complex rights challenges. How do commercial studios clear all the rights hurdles necessary to bring new works to the public, and how do they manage the rights for these new creations? How do film archives evaluate the copyright status of works that come into their collection, and how do they balance the interests of rights holders with their mission to preserve and provide access to these materials? How can visual resource professionals who facilitate the pedagogical use of motion pictures in teaching and student work traverse these tricky waters and evaluate when they can assert fair use with confidence? This session will examine issues specific to the use of film and new media in research, education, and creative works. Three speakers will address aspects of copyright that impact the commercial motion picture industry, film archives, and educational institutions.
